The ambulance is stuck in the floodwaters of Paisley while heavy rains and wind cause travel chaos

Scotland has been hit by strong winds and heavy rains that have triggered travel chaos in some areas.

Several streets of Paisley were submerged in water causing an ambulance to crash on the A761 this afternoon.

Numerous rail services were stopped with commuters who warned that trains could be delayed or revised.

Scotrail said he suffered heavy floods on the railroad in Larbet, in the Forth Valley, which means that trains were running at reduced speeds.

Stagnant water was also tested on the railroad between Westerton and Anniesland in Greater Glasgow.

The adverse weather conditions in Ayrshire were causing the spray of sea to land on the elevated railway cables causing it to trip.

Storm Dennis caused huge problems for the residents of Rutherglen and Cambuslang

Trains between Glasgow Central and Ardrossan Harbor and Largs were forced to terminate and restart from Kilwinning.

Travelers are encouraged to check the Scotrail website before starting the journey.

Lochwinnoch primary school in Renfrewshire was closed at lunchtime due to flooding in the surrounding area.

The Renfrewshire Council said: “Our teams are working hard to eliminate the floods across Renfrewshire and we recommend avoiding traveling around Lochwinnoch, Linwood Toll (Ferguslie) and Candren Road (Linwood).”

The water from the black trolley also blew up its shores in the city of Renwood, Linwood.

Motorists have been warned to expect serious surface water on the main routes in Scotland.

The Forth Bridges, which connect Edinburgh and Fife, have also warned users to expect delays.

Edinburgh bus station was closed due to the fall of the brickwork and Edinburgh Castle also closed its doors to visitors.

A yellow weather warning for strong winds and heavy rains remains active until Friday evening.

But bad weather is expected to continue over the weekend, the Met Office said.

“The strongest winds are likely to occur near heavy showers.

“The showers will fall like a mixture of rain, hail and sleet with snow accumulations that are expected to be limited to higher terrains (over 200 to 300 m). The winds will gradually decrease during Saturday evening.”
